Urban EcoStewards Workday: Uppershed GSI

Are you a fan of gardening and urban green spaces? Do you find yourself habitually picking up random trash on the sidewalk? 

Seems as if you might be the perfect fit for the Urban EcoStewards!  We need your help to get our public rain gardens/ green stormwater management sites into tip-top shape. Completed over the past few years, these sites require lots of weeding, trash removal, and dead-heading to look their best. This month we’ll be focusing on our Swissvale/Hill site, spreading wood chips to help with water retention and soil health as they decompose.

Join us each month as we take a group of dedicated volunteers to assist with site maintenance.  Each group session will serve as training for any new volunteers, so if you’ve never joined us on a clean-up or volunteer event before, these are perfect jumping-in points. 

Plan to get a little messy and dress accordingly. Closed-toe shoes required, water-resistant or waterproof shoes recommended. Gloves, bags, and tools will be provided. 

This is a volunteer event and attendance is free.

Please RSVP so we can get a good headcount!


The event is finished.
